Cabaret in May. "Adelaide Cabaret Festival". [review]
(Adelaide Review, 2001-06)

(The Australian, 2004-03-11)
With an estimated crowd of one hundred thousand cheering the opening night parade, a lively buzz at Rundle Park’s Garden of Earthly Delights, and, by yesterday, a gross of $2.9m and 163,000 in ticket sales, the Adelaide ...
Womadelaide Previewed. Womadelaide 2001 [preview]
(The Adelaide Review, 2001-02)

New Works for New Audiences. "Come Out Festival 2003". [review]

Come Out has been reappearing every two years since 1974 which my add-ups tell me is just short of thirty years. This is an extraordinary achievement and a tribute to the continuing commitment of artists, administrators, ...
Festival Fractured By Chaos. Adelaide Festival 2002 [review]
(The Australian, 2002-03-15)
The 2002 Adelaide Festival has been full of earnest innovations, sparkling surprises and reflective moments. It has also, for audiences at least, been an organisational shambles.
Simple Strength Betters Virtuosity. Adelaide Festival 2004 [review]
(The Australian, 2004-03-09)
